It may be based on the QX50, but the QX55 offers a more handsome package, thanks to the coupe-styled sloping roofline. All trims ride on 20-inch wheels and have LED headlights, signature LED DRLs, and LED fog lamps. The two top trims get unique cube design headlights and adaptive front lighting as standard. Every model comes equipped with a power-operated moonroof. From the mid-range Essential trim, buyers also get a reverse tilt-down function for the exterior mirrors.
The QX55 has slightly larger dimensions than the QX50, adding 1.4 inches in length for a total of186.3 inches to the 184.7 inches. It is 74.9 inches wide without mirrors, and 85.1 inches if you take those into account. Standing 63.8 inches tall, the QX55 is two inches shorter than its regular SUV sibling. Both share the same 110.2-inch wheelbase, though. The QX55 SUV has a minimum ground clearance of 8.6 inches and approach/departure/breakover angles of 17.4/23.6/19.1 degrees, respectively. These are pretty disappointing, but no one in their right mind would actually take a QX55 off-roading, anyway.
Curb weights vary depending on trim. The Infiniti weighs in at 4,015 pounds in base-model guise and tops out at 4,065 lbs for the Sensory. By contrast, the heftiest QX50 weighs almost 4,180 lbs.

The palette of available colors sticks to more demure shades of blue and gray on the base model, with no-cost options including Hermosa Blue, Liquid Platinum, Graphite Shadow, and Black Obsidian. For $695, you can have one of the three premium color options, including Slate Gray, Mineral Black, and Majestic White. One trim up, the Essential gets the $900 Dynamic Sunstone Red exclusive paint option, which is also available to the top-spec Sensory. The range-topper drops Black Obsidian as an option. Our tester's Slate Grey was inoffensive but more eye-catching than white or black.
